The Advanced Wound Healing lab is led by Dr. Ashley C. Brown.  We are located on the 2nd floor of the Biomedical Partnership Center on the Centennial Biomedical Campus of NCSU.  Our group’s research centers on developing novel microgel-based materials for a variety of biomedical applications including augmentation of hemostasis, enhanced wound healing, evaluation and modulation of cellular mechanotransduction, and development of biosynthetic constructs for regenerative medicine. Current projects include development of microgel-based platelet-like particles (PLPs) and other microgel assemblies for augmentation of hemostasis and regenerative medicine. We are additionally exploring the use of microgel-based assemblies with finely controlled elastic and viscoelastic properties for investigating and controlling cellular mechanotransduction responses.
